The Bliss Project was made possible by a large community of support who help us fund, create and achieve our goals:
Changing human consciousness around the need to end violence against women now and expressing appreciation and respect for feminine energy and power that results when women feel free and safe.
Creating magnificent sculptures, as strong as the steel from which they are are constructed, yet appearing human, alive and beautiful.
Generating an environment where people can participate in a community dedicated to ending violence against women.
